Horna Comments On NSBM Allegations

Finland's Horna has issued the following statement, apparently in response to having several shows canceled due to allegations that the band is involved in the NSBM (National Socialist Black Metal) movement:

"Once again the same old problems arrive and Antifa [Anti-Facism Network] try to get as many gigs on the European canceled as they can with their terrorism. It is apparently irrelevant what we do or say when they have already decided what we stand for, and as anyone can tell, HORNA has always had big political messages, symbols and pictures in our releases and live shows... or quite the opposite!! A big fuck off to Antifa and their fascist intolerant propaganda!! HORNA has never been a band with NS message. We are satanist, religious, devil-worshipping, alcohol-consuming occult bastards and our band has NOTHING to do with NS."

Horna still has the following upcoming tour dates planned: More...

"Yep, we got there in the end! In spite of nearly killing ourselves with drink at Wacken, we?ve bounced back, got our shit together and put together Part 2 of our Tuska Festival programme.

"And what a face-melter it is too!

We chat to beer soaked forest dwelling folk-metallers Korpiklaani, plus major league guitar legend Carl Saunders of Nile talks about guitars, Elizabeth Taylor, his new side project and being 'Ithyphallic' - yes, you ALMOST know what that means, but let Carl tell you himself! And we visit the dark side with cult Finnish Black Metallers Horna.
